What will it mean if Silver Fern Farms shareholders accept the Shanghai Maling deal?
BODY:
The results of the vote on allowing Chinese company Shanghai Maling to get a 50% stake in Silver Fern Farms will be known shortly.Shareholders in the meat processing and exporting company have been voting over whether they will accept Shanghai Maling's 261 million dollar offer for 50% control. Silver Fern Farms is the biggest meat processor in an export industry worth 6 and a half billion dollars a year. For the deal to go ahead, 50 percent of Silver Fern Farms' 6 thousand 200 shareholders will need to vote in favour. But an agriculture and marketing academic from Otago University says if that happens small shareholders will be marginalised by a deal, he says effectively circumvents the Takeovers Code. Rob Hamlin also says the Shanghai-Maling appointed chairperson would also have a casting vote on matters that will effectively deliver complete control of the company to the Chinese Government.

Kumara Fusion
BODY:
A Basque couple comes up with a new way to eat Kumara.
EXTENDED BODY:
By working so hard to develop Kumara Fusion we have shown our kids that they can do whatever they want to do in life. That's the beautiful thing". Olga Martinez Co-founder Kumara Fusion

A Basque couple comes up with a new way to eat Kumara.
They came from the old world to New Zealand for a better life. They’ve stayed and invented a new kumara dessert.
Olga and Carlos Martinez say they now have a supermarket chain interested…so they’re raising finance through the crowd funding site Pledge Me to produce their Kumara Fusion commercially.
This is a story then of an innovative couple, discovered at a farmers’ market in Whangarei selling their home-made kumara product, then called “Kumara Delight”.
The pair was told to apply to the government backed organisation “Callaghan Innovation”. Soon they had access to high tech facilities for research and product development at the Auckland based “Food Bowl”, a hub for food innovation.
Olga and Carlos come from the Basque region of Spain, population three million, and for centuries a hot bed of nationalism. Olga’s first language is Basque not Spanish. Her family comes from the market town of Guernica which was infamously bombed by the Germans during the Spanish Civil War, and now immortalised in a vast mural by Pablo Picasso.
That’s a bit by the way of a background. Anyway, five years ago, Olga and Carlos were looking for some place new to call home; somewhere where they could spend more time with their children.
But after settling in Northland, accountant Carlos developed gluten intolerance, so the couple then cast around for ideas of alternative foods he could eat. They tried making quince paste a Basque favourite, but couldn’t source enough fruit. An internet search pointed them to what they’ve dubbed the ‘root of goodness’… the golden kumara.
After boiling the kumara down and mixing it with seaweed extract agar for thickening , they developed a product much like the quince paste. They’ve also now combined it with honey or chocolate.
Olga says they have an offer from Foodstuffs to stock Kumara Fusion in its North Island stores. They hope to raise a minimum of seventy thousand dollars through Pledge Me, to begin proper commercial production.
Olga says the yellow kumara in particular has a lot of good minerals and vitamins. The New Zealand Herald reports that Jamie Oliver has declared the sweet potato one of fourteen “hero” foods everyone must eat if they are to reach 100!
People who invest in Olga’s and Carlos’ dream gets shares in the company… a picture of themselves in a super hero costume ... and an invitation to a big thank you party, where they’ll be one of the first try Kumara Fusion before it goes out on the shelves.
Its been an amazing journey". Olga Martinez

But what effect does this have on children learning to swim?

Feeling Trapped
BODY:
Ten years ago Robbie van Dam, Stu Barr and Craig Bond were nerdy university students making chairs and other creative pieces. They all had an interest is New Zealand's declining biodiversity, and after Robbie had a summer time job lugging heavy pest traps through dense bush for DOC, they decided things could be better.
EXTENDED BODY:
Killing rats for a living sounds gross, but for three design engineers it's exciting and a good reason to get up every day.
Ten years ago Robbie van Dam, Stu Barr and Craig Bond were nerdy university students making chairs and other creative pieces. They all had an interest is New Zealand's declining biodiversity, and after Robbie had a summer time job lugging heavy pest traps through dense bush for DOC, they decided things could be better.
The result was the Good Nature company; charged with developing a humane, toxin free, re-setting trap for possums, rats, stoats, mice and hedgehogs. And it had to be lightweight.
It was something the friends happily worked on, well into the small hours, developing a Rolls Royce version of a pest trap.
Initial design work went into the trap mechanism. The crew is now working on lures that last longer and work better. At present lures (bait) need to be re-freshed in the traps monthly. They're aiming for a product that will remain viable for up to year.
Good Nature's just celebrated ten years and the friends have signed on to work together, through good and bad times, for ten more. Stu says when they started they set 10, 50 and 200 year goals. "Who wouldn't want to see New Zealand totally pest free in 200 years, with valuable forest protected." And he says having that long term vision is what kept them going during the dark times.
It is bold, but Robbie has no trouble with that. "There's a character I like, Burt Rutan, he builds planes and he says 'In an organisation, fifty percent of the organisation has to believe that what you're doing's impossible, that's how you build a successful endeavour.'"

The Apprentice
BODY:
Seventeen-year old Louisa McClintock has left school so she can learn about farming from her grandfather Graham McClintock on his sheep and beef farm near Cheviot.
EXTENDED BODY:
Louisa McClintock swapped her Christchurch Girls' High School uniform for a Swanndri and moleskins when she decided to leave school at 17 to become a farmer.
Now she divides her time between her grandfather Graham McClintock’s 2500-hectare sheep and beef farm and her father Jeff McClintock’s smaller property that are both near Cheviot in North Canterbury.
"I've learnt everything the old school way from grandad and with dad I’ve leant everything the more modern way, so it’s definitely interesting but I think I like to do things like grandad does because you either walk or ride and with stock just treat them as if there’s always tomorrow, so there’s never a dull moment!" she says.
When Cosmo Kentish-Barnes popped in to see her she had just returned from a muster.
“We took off this morning with our dogs and we ended up mustering in some yearlings for a marking, drench and checking the condition on them and we took the horses out as well because that’s how we do all our mustering.”

As well as being an apprentice on the farm Louisa is a keen show jumper and her coach and mentor is her grandfather Graham, who is also competes at the odd event even though he is 81-year-old.
“He’s my Wikipedia when it comes to show jumping, we follow the circuits so from now until Christchurch show we are on the road every weekend right up until Horse of the Year.’
